titus, I've had the same problem with my Saitek Cyborg 3d USB for about 2years. I have downloaded the driver's from Saitek, but still got the same problem. The drivers are in add/remove, but every time I turn on the pc and want to use the joystick, I have to unplug and re-plug it back in. If you find a solution, please let me know. Thanks.
